Lossiny is a very small village next to Okiersk (an important village for the Michael Remus One family of Pollnitz) on the Napoleon Strasse (road in German) a few kilometers east of Tuchel. There were many Remus families in this village who related to the Remus families in Okiersk and the Remus families in Lubierszin. It appears that Lossiny had available land suitable for farming and was well located so as to keep the families together.

The David Remus family from Lubierszin lived in this village; he is shown as the head of family 7 in this report on the Johan Remus and Susanna Abram family. All of the following of David's children lived in Lossiny. Carl August Remus and his wives Caroline Kirchoff and later Emilie Frase are family 19. Lorenz Musolph and his wife Rosalie Remus are family 20. Johan Remus and Emilie nee Remus are family 21. Carl Kirshstein and Emilie Auguste Remus are family 22.
